It's a big job just gettin' by with nine kids and a wife
But I've been a workin' man dang near all of my life
I'll keep on workin' long as these two hands are fit to use
I'll drink a little beer in a tavern I'll sing a little bit of these workin' man blues

I'll keep my nose to the grindstone work hard everyday
I might get a little tired on the weekend after I draw my pay
I'll go back workin' come Monday mornin' I'm right back with the crew
I'll drink a little beer that evening I'll sing a little bit of these workin' man blues

Sometimes I think about leavin' do a little bummin' around
I wanna throw my bills out the window catch a train to another town
I go back workin' gotta buy my kids a brand new pair of shoes
I'll drink a little beer in a tavern I'll cry a little bit of these workin' man blues
[ guitar ]
Well hey hey workin' man workin' man like me
I ain't never been on welfare that's one place I won't be
I'll be back workin' as long as my two hands are fit to use
I'll drink my beer in a tavern I'll sing a little bit of these workin' man blues
Well I'll drink my beer in a tavern I'll sing a little bit of these workin' man blues
